Sweat is the healthy response from our body to cool itself down. Sweat can be caused by:

- Emotions: Emotional stress increases our heart beats and triggers our body’s production of sweat
- Food: Ingestion of food increases metabolism and leads to elevation in body temperature. This is also known as Gustatory sweating
